The volleyball team took home its third NESCAC title in program history last weekend, extending its win streak to 17.
Even though they gave up the second set to Amherst in the championship match, the Polar Bears came back to dominate the court as they have all season and put away the win in four sets.
Many program alumni returned to campus for the match, bringing their spirited enthusiasm to the fan section.
The team also racked up a number of postseason awards. In addition to claiming three of the four major NESCAC awards, as seen below, they also had 4 players named to All-NESCAC teams; Lisa Sheldon ’19, Caroline Flaharty ’20 and Kate Kiser ’21 were named to the First Team and Ashley Williams ’21 was named to the second team.
This is the first year since 2015 in which players from the same team have earned the Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year honors, the last occurrence being when Bowdoin secured its last title and Christy Jewett ’15 and Katie Doherty ’16 took home the honors.
The team now goes on to face Worcester State at 12:30 p.m. today in the first round of the NCAA tournament, with eyes set on going further than the Polar Bears ever have before.
